Vol. XIV. Le Roy, Wed., June 3, 1840. NS Vol. I. - No. 2.
TO OUR PATRONS.
Having assumed the management of the LE ROY GAZETTE, we herewith present to our readers the first number. The imperfections incident to a hurried collection of matter for a first number (it is but two days since we arrived in Le Roy,) will, it is confidently hoped, be treated with allowance, and our humble efforts regarded with favor...

JOE SMITH, the Mormon prophet has been arrested on a charge of treason against the State of Michigan [sic]. The next move should be to arrest his followers for excessive greeness. There would be no difficulty in substantiating the charge.

For the LeRoy Gazette.
Mr. Editor -- Sir: -- As there has been several Mormon lectures in different parts of the town, and as the facts relative to the Mormon Bible are not generally known, would not a publication in your paper, as related by the widow of the real author subserve the cause of truth; and perhaps save some from falling into that miserable delusion. T. P. B.

JOE SMITH'S NEW PEEPING STONE. -- We learn from the most indispensible authority that Joe has found a peeping stone. The circumstances of its discovery are rather curious, and we give them as received. He was walking some evenings ago with a young lady, (or woman, which ever you please,) when suddenly he darted inside and leaped into a cellar, where he presently cried out "how came I here?" and "how shall I get out?" The lady with this seized him and raised him as though he had been a child. Joe then stated the miraculous manner of his being drawn by the power of God into the cellar, and to the very spot where laid the stone, which he says has the remarkable property of enabling him to translate unknown languages, and to discover the place where treasures are hidden.

ORRIN PORTER ROCKWELL, who stands charged with an attempt to assassinate ex-Gov. Boggs, last summer, was yesterday arrested in this city, shortly after the landing of the steamboat Utica He is from the East, where he passed, and up to the time of his arrival here, by the name of French. Yesterday he entered his name at the stage office for Jacksonville as Riley. We learn that a passage has been taken from in the stage for Independence, when the crime was committed, and that he will leave on Wednesday next. Rockwell is one of the Mormons to whom Jo Smith is said to extend his countenance and protection, and by whom he is employed in such acts of crime as the one whereof he stands charged.

MILLERISM VS. MORMONISM. -- In the Nauvoo "Times and Seasons," of March 1st, Joe Smith the Mormon impostor, addresses a communication to the editor which closes as follows -- "Therefore her this, O, Earth!

HORRIBLE SCENE -- THE LATTER DAY SAINTS. -- On Thursday, the 23d November, a frightful occurrence took place at Crewe, in Cheshire, which has caused the liveliest emotions of pity, anger and surprise throughout the whole of that now populous neighborhood. It is well known that the Frand Junction Railway Company have errected immense works at Crewe and have in their employment between 400 and 500 workmen. Among these are men of all shades of religious opinions, and some of them Mormonites, better known as "Latter Day Saints."

Joe Smith, Killed!
The Western mail, just in, brings the startling news of the death of Joe Smith, the Mormon Prophet. For some days past, the mails have brought rumors of troubles among the Mormons and the citizens of Illinois, with threatenings of an out-break, originating in the destruction, by the Mormons, of a press which they alledge was established among them to their injury. Joe and his brother were in jail awaiting their trial for treason, when rushed upon by the mob and killed. -- Here are the particulars: --
